Two people had to be taken to hospital with smoke inhalation after a flat in Shooters Hill caught fire.

Ten firefighters in two fire engines were called to the blaze at the converted house on June 8.

The four-roomed flat on the first floor was alight shortly after 11pm and a man and a woman had fled the home.

London Ambulance Service were also called and they took the pair to hospital.

Plumstead firefighters were able to get the fire under control at 0.22am and the cause of the fire is not yet known.
